Paddle your canoe alongside two modern day geologists as they explore Meriwether Lewis' seens of visionary enchantment through Montana's most scenic and least disturbed segment of the Lewis and Clark trail.
Share Lewis' romantic view of the river valley, but broaden your vision to include an appreciation for the manner in which geologic processes have conspired to lay the foundation for its stark beauty, its rich history, and its flora and fauna.
Consider why the rocks used by early Indians to hold down their teepee skins are unlike any that crop out anywhere within hundreds of miles; why the spectacular White Cliffs stretch of the river is so much more rugged than other stretches; and why rapids with ominous names like Deadman Rapids developed to bedevil river travelers.
Magnificent Journey uses nontechnical language to tell its story in a way that will appeal to Lewis and Clark enthusiasts, river travelers, and anyone else who shares an interest in the natural and cultural history of the Missouri River Breaks of central Montana.
